Gateway to a coherent IT strategy: UnitedLayer Colocation at San Francisco!

Companies that manage their data on-premises need to ensure that their systems can keep up with their expansion strategies. As the business grows, so does the data generated by the business. As such, the in house IT department is inundated with expansion, management of current data setup as well as any other business-centric application technology. Therefore, companies need to establish a strategy that plans for these changes and the heightened data requirements of the future.

What should you consider when planning for an alternative solution to an on-premises setup?

It goes without saying that cost, security, and uptime are some of the main factors that companies need to consider while planning for future needs. At the same time, it is essential that you unburden your IT by looking for a solution that focuses on support and security controls. It may seem nearly impossible to manage each of these things in one solution; however, colocation is a service that can help organizations manage just that. Essentially, colocation is the installation of servers in a managed data center that is not on-premises.

Why do businesses opt for a Colocation data center?

Around the world, businesses are adopting digital transformation strategies to create a better customer experience and improved efficiency. In order to cope with the resulting rapid increase of data and bandwidth requirements from various digital technologies, more and more businesses- across all industries- are shifting data centers outside their organization, unlocking benefits such as infrastructure flexibility, better disaster recovery, improved security, ease of access to public cloud operators and an overall total lower cost.

Which Colocation partner should I choose?

With the ever-increasing complexity and capacity challenges, more and more organizations are moving towards colocation solutions rather than investing in an in-house data center- although the biggest challenge for many organizations has become “Which partner do I choose?” and most importantly “Where are their data centers located?”

The location should be the primary factor

When choosing a colocation partner, the location of their data centers is usually the primary factor that will influence your decision. A good choice of location means optimized infrastructure, better connectivity, and improved business continuity. On the flip side, a poor location can result in unstable connections and efficiency problems.

A colocation data center should be in an area that is seismically rated for protection against earthquakes and should be as safe as possible from any man-made disasters. So even if an incident occurs in your organization’s offices your critical infrastructure remains unaffected and operational.

Customers can add additional storage, compute, and networking resources with just a click of a button, and it will be up and running in 15 mins rather than the months typically required for traditional infrastructure design, procurement, installation, and turn-up.

Should location be the only factor while selecting a colocation partner?

The answer, in short, is no. When choosing a colocation data center provider, organizations should consider many other factors, including connectivity, reputation, support, services, and cost. But it is certainly true that location is one of the most important factors among all others, it is because the location has an impact on many of the other factors which are crucial to data center success.
